Dr Boom's experiments are the basis of The Boomsday Project which includes 135 brand-new cards, a new keyword, Project cards and ΩMEGA cards.

If the concept sounds familiar, that's because it sort of is. Those who don't want to pre-order can pick up three Boomsday Project card packs and a random legendary for free simply for logging in when the expansion goes live.

Blizzard recently introduced the hero Wrecking Ball toOverwatch and is preparing to launch World of Warcraft: Battle for Azeroth, but that doesn't mean the developer has forgotten about its addictive card battler Hearthstone.

The Boomsday Project is the next expansion for Hearthstone and it comes with 135 new cards and "mischievous" game mechanics.

(3) Spider Bomb (2/2)(Rare Hunter Mech Minion): Magnetic. Alternatively, it can be played targeting a Mech already in play, and if this is done it gives the existing creature all of its bonuses, including +2 power and defense.

Powerful Project cards give extreme bonuses to both players.

The other new mechanic doesn't take effect until the endgame when you have a full slate of 10 mana to work with. The Omega Defender starts as a reasonable 2/6 with Taunt for four mana. Whether players prefer to wield magic or arms in battle, strike from the shadows or head on-or have never given any of that much thought-they'll be able to jump right in, create a deck, and get in on the card-slinging action.

Speaking of which, it looks like they'll have a new tool to do so.


Projects are a new type of spell card being added, which will impact both you and your opponent. When a card like this is played, it'll be a race to see which player can exploit the advantage fastest. 5 new cards were revealed (including Rogue's new legendary spell as well as Shaman's new legendary card). One shot from the expansion's trailer hints at a new Warrior hero based on the infamous Dr. Boom, a legendary minion from the GvG expansion which dominated the game for some time.

What can you expect from those cards? Moreover, legendary spells and a new keyword called "Magnetism" will appear in the game. Maybe you could hold onto it until you have no cards in hand and only 10 cards or so left in your deck?

Excited for more reveals?

Blizzard will be adding a new single player experience into Hearthstone with the implementation of the Boomsday Project in the form of The Puzzle Lab.

As for what this upcoming expansion will bring, we have you covered on that front.

Information in this press release that involves Blizzard Entertainment's expectations, plans, intentions or strategies regarding the future, including statements about the pricing, pre-purchase, release dates, features, and functionality of The Boomsday Project and the release dates, features and functionality of The Puzzle Lab, are forward-looking statements that are not facts and involve a number of risks and uncertainties. It's clear that ΩMEGA cards are going to make big changes to the meta. Mountain and Molten Giants are now part of the Elemental tribe.

And as noted last week, Mountain Giant, Molten Giant, Witchwood Piper, North Sea Kraken, and Jungle Moonkin have had their tribal tags adjusted.
